When I received the above photographs from Christo this evening I knew I had to see what the guys behind El Blablazo were cooking up in person.

It is nothing short Greenpoint glorious!




The gentleman responsible for this masterpiece have assured me that they will resume decorating El Blablazo tomorrow. In addition, they told me anyone was welcome to come by and add decorations because this tree is (and I quote) “a public tree”!

  2. All right, I’m in the holiday spirit now. I’m going to be wishing everyone a Merry El Blablazo for the next three weeks!

  4. How can one NOT be delighted by this? I grabbed some lights and ornaments from the junk shop today and took them over there. They were really pleased!

  6. It really *is* delightful. Not sure if you mentioned this yet since I’m not caught up yet, but did you notice this year we got NO lights on Manhattan Ave? Considering those awful weird blue lights they put up last year, I prefer no lights. But I miss the nicely strung lights from the previous holiday seasons.

Tell me what you're thinking...
